This is a great song from Ben E. King. We play this song in the key of “A”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


A   F#m   D   E   A

Verse 1
	A
  When the night has come
F#m
  And the land is dark
              D         E                 A
  And the moon is the only light we'll see

  No, I won't be afraid,
        Fm
  No, I won't be afraid
              D            E             A
  Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

Chorus:
		     A
So, darling, darling, stand by me,
    Fm
Oh, stand by me.
    D     E           A
Oh, stand, stand by me,
Stand by me.

SOLO

Verse 2
  If the sky that we look upon
  Should tumble and fall
  Or the mountain should crumble to the sea,
  I won't cry, I won't cry,
  No, I won't shed a tear
  Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

Chorus

SOLO

END
